Hi Kayla,

RRC have been using OpenCities since about 2011 (back when it was called 
Seamless) and have found it great to maintain our sites. End users can update 
pages without any web developer knowledge – it’s all forms and fields to fill 
in. Downtime has been minimal over those years and support/upgrades are 
reliable. As has been said, their product is tailored for local government so a 
lot of requirements/legislations for councils around websites are accounted for.

If you want to create more than one website, there’s also an optional Subsite 
module (additional charge) that lets you build more websites if you wanted to 
create extra sites for different departments. We also use their OpenForms 
product when using forms on our websites.

Feel free to take a look at RRC’s websites (we have around 7-8 sites in 
OpenCities) for an idea of possible designs.

Hi,
We also moved to OpenCities around 5 years ago and are really happy with the 
platform, it’s easy to use, the implementation was pretty straight forward 
(reviewing all our content wasn’t). Offers pretty granular security controls 
and the ability to create templates to make content management pretty easy for 
staff who otherwise wouldn’t dare touch a website. Support is good and they 
frequently release new features.

Cheers,

Nathan Stubberfield

Hi all,

Byron Shire Council has been on the Opencities platform for about 5 years & are 
very happy with the solution. Their website platform is specifically designed 
for local council. We don’t have any internal web developers and the general 
staff are able to manage their own content. We also use their intranet & eforms 
solutions. The service is reliable & support is responsive. Happy to provide 
more details if needed.

Regards,
Colin

Hi Guys,

Has anyone used open cities to design their council website? We are currently 
in the process of trying to find a good website developer and have stumbled 
across “open cities” which looks really good but wanting to know if anyone has 
had firsthand experience with them?
